Synopsis

The contributors to this special issue of Tikkun seek to redefine the boundaries of political and ethical responsibility by crediting a worldview in which we are held to account for the well-being of everyone who has "passed through our city," if only momentarily. Their conclusions challenge the ethos of materialism that Tikkun believes is at the root of globalized capitalism and, alternatively, articulate a social justice ethos derived from the Jewish tradition of "accompaniment," the call to take care of those who enter our common space. Contributors from Christian, Muslim, and Jewish traditions bring an interfaith perspective to the foundations of social responsibility, laying the groundwork for a new global notion of justice. Drawing on a model from Rabbinic Judaism, one contributor discusses homelessness in Los Angeles, calling us to adopt a new, radical sense of obligation in relation to our neighbors. Another offers challenging insights from the point of view of one who grew up homeless. An essay from the Christian tradition expands this model by comparing our mutual relationships to body parts that all belong to the same whole.

Another essay extracts from medieval Islamic texts a vision of the state as a caregiver and then compares this vision to life in Vancouver, where citizens' taxes underwrite robust social services for those in need.
